Rocky the Squirrel


Yesterday was my first day back on day shift. Did that make sense? I’ve been working nights for four months, and now I’m back on days. When I went outside, I saw this crazy little squirrel running around the back parking lot. I couldn’t tell if he was hungry, thirsty, or just plain nuts. And why was I trying to figure out what the “needs” of a squirrel were? Because it was HOT! A co-worker and I tried to feed him dog food. I think he just wanted water and some shade though. The silly squirrel kept going under the cars. Umm, not a smart move.

I ended up following this little dude or dudette around for like 15 minutes trying to feed him and get him to drink some water. It’s pretty sad. I think it’s because he can’t talk back. I finally left him alone, which probably made him happy.

LOL! Did you at at least leave the water out?!? My dad works nights (OC Sheriff) and we went to have "lunch" (dinner) with him this week.

I've noticed that with animals. Anytime I try to feed them or do anything, they run from me.
